    Are Advanced Dining Reservations for breakfast still worthwhile to get into the park early? We are visiting multiple days in April 2020 and have Be Our guest breakfast booked at 815 on a regular 9 am opening day. We also have Disney Junior breakfast at 845

    Hi, Matt!

    Thanks so much for sending your question to us at Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Early morning breakfasts--before Park Open--are a fantastic way to start any day at Walt Disney World. You'll get to enjoy a fabulous meal in magical location, and when you are finished, you can enjoy all that the park has to offer while many other Guests are still waiting to enter. Great plan!

    Arrive early so that you can capture some quick pictures as you head to your dining location. Most Guests will not have entered the parks yet, so you'll get some beautiful backdrops with practically no one around you. 

    Your early morning breakfast at Be Our Guest Restaurant will put you in the perfect mood for a day of exploring Magic Kingdom Park. When finished, you'll be fairly far into Magic Kingdom, and many Guests will still be making their way up Main Street, USA. You may see shorter Wait Times at attractions and Character Greetings near you, so hop into those lines before others get there. Some of the most popular attractions in that area include Seven Dwarfs Mine TrainPeter Pan's FlightThe Many Adventures of Winnie the PoohUnder the Sea - Journey of The Little Mermaid, and, not too far away, Haunted Mansion.

    Although Disney's Hollywood Studios is currently scheduled to open at 9:00 most days in April, keep an eye on the Park Calendar. Because Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, an All-New Land has been so incredibly popular, Park Open has been adjusted a bit earlier in recent weeks. If you arrive prior to Park Open, look for a Cast Member to direct you to the entrance for Guests with early morning reservations.

    At Park Open, you may be able to join a Boarding Group for Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance using the My Disney Experience mobile app, then head off to your fun and fabulous Disney Junior Play 'n Dine at Hollywood & Vine. When finished, check out the brand-new Mickey & Minnie's Runaway Railway, then set off for a day that's sure to be packed with adventure!
